The NA35 experiment was a particle physics experiment that took place in the North Area of the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) at CERN. It used a streamer chamber with comprehensive hadronic and electromagnetic calorimetry. This experiment was used to observe the properties of nucleus-nucleus collisions at 60 and 200 GeV/nucleon, to understand the degree of stopping and thermalization, determine the energy densities achievable in those conditions, and to measure other related properties and quantities.[1]

The NA35 experiment was approved on 18 September 1991 and completed on 19 October 2002. It was succeeded by the NA49 experiment. The spokesperson for the experiment was Peter Seyboth.[2][3]
